Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'In the evening went to the Club & on the Road called in at the Albion as I wanted to see the Ovens & Murray Advertiser & my letter if it had been published. After some trouble I found the paper I wanted & my letter in it, though in very small type. The type I would'ent have minded but I was very much annoyed in finding two or three paragraphs I did'ent write were put into the letter above the signature I used on this as on other occasions'
